Rosa Lane is a fashionable journalist in her thirties, already the picture of London achievement. Her handsome boyfriend is something in politics and her other friends are confident, prosperous and ambitious. But one afternoon, staring at her computer screen at work, she fails to see the point, walks out of her job - and begins her long fall from modern grace.

One of the worst books I've ever read. Not only was it boring, but, in its attempt to be funny, it was painfully unfunny. The repetitive storyline and dislikable characters made my eyes continually glaze over as I tried, and tried to get to the end. When I finally did finish the book, it was a welcome relief.

Prose was great, but if I wanted to hear that much complaining/talk of slacking off, I'd call one of my depressed friends. Jeez. Read about 75 pages before I just couldn't take it anymore.
